Many congressional Democrats, as well as other progressives, have joined the call to “abolish ICE,” but it’s no wonder many of them seem to realize that message won’t play well nationally:
ICE Just Arrested Dozens of Illegal Aliens, the Majority Have Criminal Records https://t.co/vWoQWhkY1Q

From Pavlich’s story at Townhall:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency many Democrats want to abolish, recently conducted a raid in Newark, New Jersey and arrested dozens of illegal aliens. The overwhelming majority have serious criminal records.
ICE targeted Illegal aliens who had been incarcerated in the Middlesex County Jail and released into the community by local law enforcement without notice to federal immigration officials. The aliens arrested had ICE detainers that were not honored. Newark is a “sanctuary city.”
Read it all here.
"Of those arrested…78% had prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges…" including aggravated criminal sexual contact, DUI, endangering child's welfare, battery, theft, burglary, weapon possession, forgery, domestic violence, disorderly conduct, & illegal entry. https://t.co/KjqgyNCh9z

Wow. Maybe an enterprising DC reporter can run this story by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and other “abolish ICE” supporters in Congress to see what they think.
But But But……. Nancy says the MS-13 are swell guys.???
